(Success Story) 11 Candidates Cleared the UPSC Examination 2010 From Manipur
strife-torn Manipur, it was a day of jubilation on Thursday when 11 of its
candidates cleared the UPSC civil services examination 2010 along with 23 other
northeastern students. Manipur is the most troubled state in the region where
insurgency is part of one`s daily existence.
The successful candidates include grand-daughter of veteran Congress leader of Manipur and the oldest member of Parliament, Rishang Keishing. Almost all these candidates studied in Manipur but for higher studies branched out to other cities, including the national capital.
Poor law and order situation was one of the key issues why they moved out.
Haulinalal Guite from Churchandpur district and now staying in New Delhi, stood tallest among them ranking 33. "I am so happy. The credit goes to my parents and the almighty," gushed Guite (23) whose parents are doctors in Delhi.
Guite, who completed his bachelor`s degree from St Stephen`s College, New Delhi, said, he studied for about five hours every day. A resident of Upper Lamka, he is the second from Manipur to be among the top 50. In 1999, R.K Dinesh Singh from Imphal ranked 11.
